Spotlight: Crissy Smith

Crissy Smith knows paranormal romance. She has a particular talent for writing gripping wereshifter erotic romance novels, as her fans only know too well!

Totally Bound is releasing new Special Editions versions of each title in Crissy’s hit series, the Were Chronicles. Revised and reedited with some extra content, these books are the perfect choice for anyone who enjoys a red-hot paranormal read.

The good news is, you can already get your hands on the new edition of book one in the series, Pack Alpha, which tells the tale of non-shifter Marissa Boyd and her quest to become part of a world she can never be a part of with a man who must teach her the ways of being with an alpha.


Spotlight: L.A. Long

Celebrated author L.A. Long thrilled readers nationwide with her sizzling romantic suspense novel, Operation No Coincidence—and in 2015 she returned with an absorbing, soul-stirring new romance about buried secrets and defying the odds, It’s Not Too Late for Therapy. Her latest novel, Another Notch in the Beltway, will soon be released digitally.

In anticipation of Another Notch in the Beltway, we’re taking a look back at It’s Not Too Late for Therapy.


Spotlight & Contest: Skye Jordan



Joan Author PhotoSkye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.


Spotlight & Contest: Fatal Consequences by Marie Force

Today we welcome Marie Force as her blog tour makes a stop at Romancing the Book.  She’s celebrating the release of Fatal Identity, the 10th book in her Fatal series.  So, her blog tour is taking a look at the whole series and our stop is all about Fatal Consequences, book 3.  But first, let’s learn more about Marie.

Marie Force is the New York Times bestselling author of 50 contemporary romances, including the Gansett Island Series, which has sold more than 2.3 million books, and the Fatal Series from Harlequin Books, which has sold more than 1.2 million books.


Historical Romance Retreat Sneak Peek

The Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London


Have you heard about the Historical Romance Retreat?  If not, I have a treat for you.  Next September, some of the biggest names in historical romance will be gathering in Spokane, Washington.  Since Romancing the Book is based in Spokane, I knew that we had to somehow be involved in this inaugural retreat.  We first introduced HRR with an interview with Renee Bernard, one of the founders, which can be read here.

Over the next 12 months leading up to HRR, Romancing the Book will be featuring most (if not all) of the attending authors with interviews and guest posts as well as reviews of their new releases.  


Spotlight on The Consequence Series by Rachel Van Dyken


Today we are spotlighting Rachel’s Consequences series.  The Consequence of Loving Colton released in April and was followed up in June with The Consequence of Revenge.  Sit back and enjoy this spotlight and then enter our anniversary contest.



The Consequences of Loving Colton was sexy, uplifting, and as funny as it was passionate. A must read!” — New York Times Bestselling Author, Melissa Foster

Just when you think Van Dyken can’t possibly get any better, she goes and delivers The Consequence of Loving Colton.


Sneak Peak for Capture by Rachel Van Dyken


If you’re a fan of Rachel Van Dyken’s Seaside or Ruin series then you may have been anticipating the upcoming release of Capture, the first book in her new Seaside Pictures series.  Thanks to Rachel, we have a little sneak peak at this book which is scheduled to release on August 20, 2015.


Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.

But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.


A Week with Rachel Van Dyken


Can you believe that Romancing the Book is celebrating their 7th anniversary?  This year we decided to be a little more low key, but still wanted to do something special for our readers.  So, we asked NY Times Bestselling Author and RTB Reviewer Rachel Van Dyken to be our guest for the week.

But before we go any further, let’s learn a little about Rachel:
